Birdie Pincushion on Nippon China cup

My latest little birdie. Beautiful hand painted NAPPON china cup. I matched the color of the birdie with the blue in the cup. I added a hang tag. I painted the nest with metallic paints
I am adding this sweet cup and birdie to my ebay
I have a bit of exciting news for myself...I was commissioned today to paint a couple of panels at a brand new lodge/resort Moonstone Hotel that is to opening Oct. 1 the Hotel is connected to our "becoming famous" Oregon Gardens . I have to have them done by Fri. I'm putting Daisies on one and Hollyhocks on the other. I'll keep you posted.

Laurie,

Pretty! Did you know that "Nippon" means "Japan"? I love those style teacups! Especially the bits of gold mixed in.

Love the tag and the pincushion.

Congratulations on your commission! Yay, girl!

Hi Laurie,
Wow,how cool to paint a wall! I love the Garden and the people I have met from Moonstone are so sweet. I did the quilt show there last January.
The postcards are from Mod Digital pages 7 and 10. I changed the color, but pretty much left it the way it was, unusual for me because I love all the tricks! But I have other stuff I must work on occasionallly!
JOY!
